Bethlem Royal Hospital, 1854. The criminal wing for the insane. Two doctors set out to reform patient treatment. They prefer conversation over punishment; they offer care, rather than restraint. But the Commission for Lunacy has other ideas. Two patients get caught in the crossfire as their radical plans unravel. Based on the incarceration of artist Richard Dadd and the beginnings of psychotherapy, this thought-provoking and stylish performance asks can talk really provide a cure?
